Westlife baby on the way

02/05/2005 at 08:17 AM ET

Shane Filan, a member of the Irish boyband Westlife, and his wife Gillian Walsh are expecting their first child.  Shane revealed that Gillian is thirteen weeks pregnant in an interview with the Irish Daily Mirror yesterday. 

He said, "We just burst out crying and couldn’t stop hugging each other. It was one of the best moments of my life.  We knew over Christmas but we wanted to wait until after 12 weeks to tell everyone. All over Christmas and New Year we had to pretend that we were on a detox diet so we had an excuse not to be drinking. I gave it up too to make it more convincing. The hardest part was keeping it a secret from everyone. We announced it to the family a couple of days ago and they are delighted. I told all the Westlife boys today and they are thrilled too."
